  • DU Speed Booster review: A performance Swiss army knife

    Most smartphones these days are behemoths of power, almost as powerful as micro PCs in a pocket-sized form. While all that power is available at our fingertips, quite literally, however, that doesn’t mean that our

  • HTC One M9 review; newer, but not much better

    By now, you’ve heard both sides of the argument. Either the HTC One M9 is a fantastic update of the One M8, or it’s iterative and boring. The camera is either ‘just fine for normal use’, or severely lacking. On paper, the

  • Samsung Galaxy S6 / Edge Review

    The first question you should be asking yourself – after you’ve decided on a Samsung Galaxy S6 – is whether or not you want to go with the Edge. Your choice will influence the rest of your life in the smartphone

  • HTC One M9: an excruciating practice in refinement

    HTC has shown its hand for 2015, it’s high end race horse for this year, and the last smartphone to be launched under now ex-CEO Peter Chou. It is clear from a glance, and from a bit of reading of HTC’s PR materials,

  • HTC RE Camera review

    A periscope. An asthma inhaler. We’ve even heard the RE from HTC referred to as other things we won’t print, but one thing remains clear: HTC wants you snapping more pics. With the RE, HTC is moving past their time as a phone

  • HTC Desire Eye Review: Welcome to the (selfie) machine

    Marketed as the “phone made for selfies”, the HTC Desire Eye forges a new path for HTC. It’s not all metal, and definitely not a flagship device. After leaning on the One series for two years, HTC is now looking to the

  • DROID Turbo review: The do-it-all Android phone

    Just like 2013, late 2014 brought us a Moto X from Motorola, but also a new DROID lineup. The Verizon-only handset is — like the Moto X refresh — a linear upgrade, void of much to “new” really look at. Still, and again as
